This Longing Vessel: Studio Museum, Artists in Residence 2019–20 will be at the museum until March, but why not see it now?  The Studio Museum in Harlem presents its annual Artist-in-Residence exhibition at MoMA PS1. From media, painting and performance, this exhibition features the work of artists E. Jane (b. 1990, Bethesda, MD), Naudline Pierre (b. 1989, Leominster, MA), and Elliot Reed (b. 1992, Milwaukee, WI). Radical intimacy is the inspiration, and This Longing Vessel explores new languages and visions which can build an exciting future. Contemporary art at its best!

If you live in New York City, it can also be your last chance to see Handles, an incredible contemporary art exhibition by artist Haegue Yang.

Handles are points of attachment and material catalysts for movement and change. Iridescent patterns and monumental sculptures with distinctive shapes represent interface between people and things. Covered in skins of bells, the sculptures produce subtle jangling sounds when handled by performers. There’s also an ambient birdsong noise, which was actually recorded at a tense political moment in the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea during the 2018 summit. Handles is an ode to craft traditions, historical inspiration and contemporary art.
